Evidence is mounting that the upcoming Chevrolet performance sedan will feature the letters “SS” in its name, somewhere. And no, it won’t stand for Schutzstaffel. A quick look at OnStar’s website reveals that a “SS Performance” model will be compatible with the OnStar RemoteLink app when it launches next year as a 2014 model. This comes to us after we were the first to report that General Motors filed a trademark application for the “SS” name.
The vehicle in question is expected to pick up where the beloved and short-lived Pontiac G8 left off, and will share architectural similarities with the 2014 Holden “VF” Commodore. And according to sources, we can expect it to be a leader in power output, coupled with a relatively low mass for its size, and the practicality of four doors. Everything else is a mystery at this point.
